Our reupholstery workshop
An aunt left me a small inheritance, so I built a reupholstery workshop. She and her sisters were makers: their hands never still, a piece of work always on the go. She was a silversmith who also made silk lampshades. Her older sister made hats. The youngest sister worked in silver and in clay; she still paints at the age of 93. They were, and are an inspiration. My workshop is where I engrave glass, do some bookbinding and work in fabric. It is also the home of The Playful Chair.
